Frequently asked questions

Answered by Wetmore Community Cemetery

  • What's the process to purchase a plot like from Wetmore Community Cemetery?

    Mot Questions can be answered at our website but feel free to call Jamie or Nathan and we will meet at WCCI to show plots available. Purchases are bank cashier's check or cash only and a certificate is mailed once paid in full. We require purchaser’s TXDL or ID in order to sign paperwork and take home receipts and bylaws to give copies to show family members.

    If immediate burial is required, once paid in full, we mark plot and coordinate/approve the company you hire to open/close and setup or use our pavilion. Funeral homes must contact us and verify authorization to enter. Typically, casket or urn liners can be purchased by companies that provide opening and closing services.
    We ask for copies of COD, obituary and I will post memorials on findagrave. Within a year of burial a headstone marker must be placed (or litigation action is taken again the purchaser.) Once headstone is placed, I update photos and GPS for family anywhere in the world to find their loved one.
    We hold our annual meeting to all the second Saturday in April at 0930.

  • What should people know about when visiting Wetmore Community Cemetery?

    As we have all volunteer staff, we cannot be on site like perpetual care cemeteries. We simply ask you to open both gates upon entering and close them if you are the last visitor. We humbly ask you never drive off paved roads. Call if you want to reserve the pavilion. We want you to always visit, show reverence, take only good memories of your loved ones, as many pictures you want, and any trash with you. If you see any acts of vandalism please contact SAPD via 911 and call us. If you wish to volunteer time or do a service project we will gladly accept.

    "This historic site is part of the bounty given to Louise Jackson for the supreme sacrifice of her husband, Thomas Jackson, at the Battle of the Alamo."

    "The King's Highway passed on the western border of this cemetery which was the burial site for settlers and Indians since the early 1800's."

    "Rudolph and Eleanora Reeh, interred here, emigrated from Germany in 1844 and 1845. They were part of the first German immigrants to arrive in Indianola, Texas and were part of the first settlers of New Braunfels. Rudolph Reeh served in the Confederate Army during the civil war."

    "Jakob and Mary Goll, interred here, settled in Seay, now Wetmore, in 1846. The Golls were active members of La Villita church. In 1861 Jakob Goll founded the first Hermann Sons Lodge in Texas. Harmonia Lodge #1 is still active in San Antonio." April 21, 2001

  • What sets you apart from other cemeteries?

    We provide Christians with Cemetery Burial Space opportunity for Preplanning purposes or Immediately. For over 100 years, this cemetery has been a Christian faith centered organization. As a Texas Private Cemetery, we decide and reserve the right to refuse service based on other religions. We ask you to please respect this as we respect your right to freely worship to your religion in the United States. Our cemetery is a 501(C)(3) Non-Profit and operates solely from volunteer support.
    WCCI is a 100% volunteer run organization. We DO NOT GET PAID. This means we have no incentive to upcharge or pressure sales like many “One Stop Shops” or businesses in this field have been known to resort to.
    We are not a perpetual care cemetery. We have no office overhead, electricity or water on site minimizing operational costs to you.

WCCI is not a perpetual care cemetery and is volunteer operated. Florists have delivered graveside but funeral homes or families ensure flowers are placed. If you have a special occasion and are out of town, I have placed them after delivery to my home and sent photos. JJ
